Returning to M’Hamid joining a caravan of nine dromedaries.
This is a panorama I took in the early morning of 30.10.2006 in Tashkurgan (3,600m) when I was travelling from Kashgar, China to Sost, Pakistan. The bus stopped here overnight before crossing the Kunjerab Pass – the highest border of the world – the day after. I was remembered of this place when watching The Kite Runner yesterday evening. Many scenes play below the fortress of Tashkurgan from where this panorama is taken.
There are two things in India that never stop amazing me, even when I am now the second time here and many customs might not feel so special anymore. The first thing is just how dense a queue can be and nobody even seems to notice (I was lucky this time I had to get my ticket at a different counter). If you have been to India yourself however, what will astonish you in this picture that there actually is a queue.
Junagadh Train Station, Gujarat.
Number Two is just how large a crispy Paper Masala Dosa can be. (Sorry, didn’t fit for the lens of my mobile phone)
